Working Group Intellectual Property Rights

The Working Group on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) was founded in light of the current situation of IPR in Europe.

The group will set up an inventory of museum-specific problems in IPR lawmaking (national and European level), as well as inventories on good practices and of national museum groups, who are active in the IPR field. They seek a consensus on solution strategies and standpoint positions, particularly to advocate unanimously to policy makers on the national and European level, and because there are various IPR policies in the different European countries.
